BUFFALO, N.Y., January 11, 2019 – OnCore Golf Technology Inc. is pleased to announce that two iconic names in the worlds of finance and golf have now become shareholders in the company. Charles (“Chuck”) Schwab, the founder and chairman of one of the leading banks and stock brokerage firms in the United States, and Al Geiberger (“Mr. 59”) joined the ranks late last year. The two were teammates on the Santa Barbara high school golf team, have remained good friends since, and together bring a passion for golf and entrepreneurism that fueled their interest in the company.
“This great game of golf needs companies like OnCore Golf,” commented Schwab. “Their products perform like no others and by making the game more enjoyable, it will encourage players of all skill levels to continue to participate and grow the game. The ELIXR tour ball, developed by OnCore Golf, is now my ball of choice.”
Schwab is known – in life and in business – as an innovator. His was one of the first brokerage firms to embrace the internet, employ automation to minimize transaction costs and offer customers a real alternative to the well-established Wall Street behemoths that had dominated the industry for decades.
“It was an honor to be able to present OnCore’s story to Chuck, and his level of engagement and interest in seeing how he could help the company advance was incredible,” said Keith Blakely, OnCore’s chairman and CEO. “In a very short time, it became clear that we shared the same philosophical approach to business – keeping our customers at the center of everything we do, delivering the highest-quality products and services, and always working hard to lead, not follow, through innovation.”
Al Geiberger, the 1966 PGA Champion, the first PGA professional to record a score of less than 60 in tournament play and the winner of 11 PGA tournaments added, “If I’d had the OnCore ELIXR in ’77, who knows what my nickname might be today – Mr. 58? Mr. 57? I’ll never know, but I do know that I’m excited to be working with the great team at OnCore Golf and to be partnered with my friend and golf partner Chuck Schwab to bring the best balls to players everywhere.”
